“This is the book every actor wishes they had when they were getting started.

As Andi Matheny points out in her wise, witty, practical, and absolutely essential new book, Act ALIVE, it’s never too late for an actor (or anyone) to put themselves on the right path to success and fulfillment. From personal expe- rience, Matheny knows all the hard knocks and insecurities that keep actors from achieving their dreams, and offers a step-by-step guide to getting where you need to be, artistically and professionally, whether you’re just starting out or stuck mid-career. Can’t recommend it highly enough!”
